Many postcards sold in Ayutthaya contain the photos of this temple. You should go and take your own! The three main towers are gorgeous and you can climb up to the half of them. Observe the carvings on the surface of the tower.

As part of the tour of the 6 temples this is another beautiful one to stop by. Ensure you have the combined ticket for all 6 temples for 220 baht.
